OVERVIEW

A true throwback instrument, outfitted to maximize playability.

The Gibson Firebird 2017 T is the original bird. Created by legendary automotive designer and visionary Ray Dietrich, the original 1963 Firebirds literally reversed conventional concepts for guitar bodies and headstocks. Building on the famed Firebird Mini-Humbuckers, Steinberger gearless tuners, and neck-through-body construction, this year's Firebird also makes tremendous improvements in playability, thanks to polished frets and rolled binding. Delivered in a classic Gibson hardshell case with a Gibson multi-tool, a premium leather strap and a polishing cloth.

A magical Gibson

By Kytus

from Omaha, NE

Comments about Gibson 2017 Firebird T Electric Guitar:

I don't know if I just got the best of the batch, but this guitar is flawless and absolutely a joy to play. It sounds amazing and honestly, among all of my Gibsons, it stands out as a lovely example of how great a guitar can be made.

Poor quality

By Brian

from Texas

Comments about Gibson 2017 Firebird T Electric Guitar:

I was pretty excited about getting this guitar but have been so disappointed since it got here. The quality was just bad. Over spray on the headstock. Fret buzz up and down the neck. Took it to two different people (one being an authorized Gibson warranty repair guy) and neither of them were able to get the buzz out. Buzzed so bad it wouldnt get a proper tune or intonation. Needless to say it's on its way back. Shame too, was a beautiful guitar.
